Crossways Business Park lies immediately to the East of the QE2 bridge at Dartford and extends all the way to Greenhithe.
The site was originally reclaimed land made up of very sandy marine fill. It was apparent to the developer, Blue Circle, that if there was to be high-quality landscaping on the site, irrigation was required.
In 1989, ISC developed a system based on licensed abstraction from the main lake and a high-pressure distribution system.
The original contract covered planting along the initial roads and a park around the lake, and was extended to include irrigation over the whole site. It has been developed section by section, with new areas commissioned almost annually.
Over 20 years, there have been upgrades to the pump and control system, which is monitored and adjusted remotely from ISC's base, but a lot of the site is original and still running, all under ISC maintenance.
